Miribel-Lanchâtre is a commune in the Isère department in south-eastern France.

Geography[edit]

It is located about 30 km (19 mi) south of Grenoble exposed on the south-east slopes of the Vercors balcony, stretching over several hamlets in the canton of Monestier de Clermont. The main village is Lanchâtre with its church, castle, town-hall, primary school and typical buildings from an old village. The hamlet Le Vernay lies 3 km (1.9 mi) uphill a mountain road and offers a nice lookout at the cross. There is an ancient farm still working with most modest methods and always worth a visit. Miribel-Lanchâtre is the starting point of many walking tracks in the lower Vercors with spendid views over the Trièves landscape bordered by the Obiou massif at the opposite end about 50 km (31 mi) away.
